I thought I'd got the best of the Hino records, and then a couple of great ones come my way in a day. Thanks for sharing this, and for the great blog in general.

That was recorded on April 14. El Goog Ja has a recoding from April 8, go and check it out.

Thanks for the Hino post---am new to J-Jazz, but this set looks really good to me. (as with your previous J=Jazz posts too!) Thanks.

Between you and Jazz-Nekko I have received a great education in Japanese jazz. I really love 70's Japanese jazz.

This is a nice set! Thanks!

Killer set - quite a contrast between the fiery group at the start and the reflective solo performance at the end. Thank you very much for sharing this.

I pray for the day, or block of days, I have a clear schedule and equally clear mind to really absorb this fine music. Maybe it's common knowledge, but it seems to me that Japanese jazz took up the slack as the US-based jazz scene was swamped by fusion and rock. Some of the best stuff I've ever heard comes from J-jazz of this era. Can't get enough.
